Thanks for the clues!  I should have known there was still a file I 
hadn't visited-- profile.css.xslt.  Now I see that, as you say,
for #menu .menupagetitle 
  - Dialog font is used
  - toolbox backgroundcolor is used
I had ignored (commented out) these values in skinconf because they 
seemed useless.  Now I have set them in skinconf and have the (pleasing) 
result I wanted without changing anything in profile.css.xslt or screen.css.

And I, too, edit the css to position my logo image near center!

    <color name="toolbox" value="#BFFFDF" font="#000000"/>
    <color name="dialog" value="#E5D9E4" font="#BF5F1F"/>
